I was so excited to try out this red velvet cupcakes I'd thought I'd share the recipe with you as this was one of my favourites to use and easy to follow along too.
300g caster sugar
2 tablespoons red food colouring
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon vinegar
250g plain flour
5 tablespoons best quality cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
Prep:30min › Cook:20min › Ready in:50min
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4. Grease two 12 cup muffin tins or line with 20 paper cases.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs, buttermilk, red food colouring and vanilla. Stir in the bicarb and vinegar.
Combine the flour, cocoa powder and salt; stir into the mixture just until blended. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases, dividing evenly.
Bake in the preheated oven until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the tin set over a wire rack.
When cool, arrange the cupcakes on a serving platter and ice with desired frosting.
